Later that year he auditioned for vocalist job with a band called "Sour Milk Sea" and soon became their lead singer. Then in 1970 he joined "Smile" as lead Freddie Mercury.spacersinger. Freddie decided the band should be re-named "Queen", changing his Queen.spacername to "Mercury" at the same time.
